And rather useless, from the experience of the people who ran it
(it's several times slower than MOO, and MOO is rather slow to start

Well, okay, so I put my foot into my mouth. I wanted to make a point
that MOOs vary a lot, not that LPs don't.

(but I heard too many good things about it to resist taking a closer
look :) )
